The updated Mac mini was among the first Apple devices to adopt the new M1 chip, though all of Apple's Macs will make the transition to Apple's in-house silicon over the next year or two.

M1 represents a huge leap forward in terms of performance and efficiency as it combines the CPU, GPU, and a Neural Engine designed for advanced machine learning. Apple states that M1's eight CPU cores offer 2.8x faster performance with its 8-core GPU also providing up to a 6x boost for graphics performance in games and other intensive apps. This Mac mini model includes a speedy 512GB SSD plus 8GB of unified RAM for improved multitasking.

On the back, there are two Thunderbolt / USB 4 ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, two USB-A ports, plus Gigabit ethernet and audio out. The new Mac mini also supports Wi-Fi 6 for speedy internet connectivity. Loaded on to the machine is macOS Big Sur but you'll also be able to upgrade to macoOS Monterey as soon as it releases in the fall.
